The premise is simple: Fresh off a Starbucks sponsorship of the campaign, the A.V. Club introduces the internet to a new music-video series, in which 25 bands will cover 25 songs in The A.V. Club office. After each song is played it’s crossed off the list. The songs themselves are pretty much standard retro indie fair and I’m actually looking forward to hearing this play out.
Songs already covered include:
- Ted Leo & the Pharmacists/Tears For Fears “Everybody Wants to Rule The World”
- Fruit Bats/Hall & Oats “One On One”
- Cursive/Starship “Mama I’m Swollen”
